This week, compose your subject off-center, obeying the Rule of Thirds.
The Rule of Thirds is a photography concept that puts the subject of the photograph off-center, which usually results in blank space in the rest of the image. If you focus closely on your subject and use a wide aperture, your photograph’s background will also be beautifully blurred in that blank space. The blurred area behind your focal point is referred to as bokeh, and when executed well, it adds depth and artistry to an otherwise simplistic photograph.
This photo was taken after a 3-day fire-fight on our farm.
The fire affected 7 farms, taking the grazing.
Thankfully, all of us had just finished harvesting the corn.
It was bad!
